Being led by the Spirit to reach out brings challenges -
but our church family is changing by leaps and bounds
Just a few years ago, our children's department was getting smaller. We had about three children of elementary age attending. Many of the active youth group graduated and there were only a few teenagers. One of our church members, a teacher, brought a couple of students from school as guests. Another staff person challenged us to reach out to some children who were slipping through some of the other systems. These students and children did not have family that attended this church. We picked them up and brought them. And they wanted the van to come and get them again. They wanted back. And they brought a few friends and siblings.
